While these procedures are illegal in Europe, they still persist in every state in America. Every year, more than a million American pets are subjected to non-therapeutic invasive procedures such as toe reduction (declawing), tail amputation (docking), ear cutting (cropping), and more. These normalized cruelties not only cause physical pain but also negatively impact the pets’ emotional well-being and long-term health. Yet, we walk down the street every day and the number of docked tails does not even register. Declawed cats that have had their bones and tendons removed are commonplace. They are simply part of “what is.” As animal lovers, it's our responsibility to speak up and help their cries be heard.
You can make a significant impact by joining NPAWS and the Pet Positive Movement! When you donate $16 or more, you automatically become a member, receiving exclusive benefits, including a 10% discount in our store, and the opportunity to shape our initiatives. Together, we will raise awareness, educate the public, and affect meaningful change in the lives of countless cats and dogs.
